referred to as Data Together, the four collaborating international data
organisations—CODATA, GO FAIR, RDA, WDS—have a joint commitment
in March 2020) to work together to optimise the global research data
ecosystem and to identify opportunities that will trigger federated
infrastructures to service the new reality of data-driven science.

These infrastructures are typically referred to as science clouds or
platforms, or research commons, and can be defined at a high level as
forming a global trusted ecosystem that provides seamless access to high
quality interoperable research outputs and services. Science clouds and
commons are developing around the world to address the need for
infrastructures to support cross-geographical and cross-disciplinary open

Both CODATA and RDA have major initiatives to work with the development of
such open research infrastructures: CODATA’s Global Open Science Cloud
<https://www.cstcloud.net/gosc/> (GOSC) and RDA’s Global Open Research
Commons <https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/global-open-research-commons-ig>
developed in collaboration with the WDS. These came out of a series of
meetings held at International Data Week, RDA Plenaries, CODATA Conferences
and the FAIR Convergence Symposium, and ultimately include all the Data
Together organisations as partners. The GOSC and GORC initiatives aim to
encourage cooperation, alignment and interoperability among these

Cooperation Among Open Science Platforms

Teams from both initiatives will communicate regularly and ensure shared
membership to minimise divergence and duplication. The activities will be
complementary: where possible, GOSC will seek to implement recommendations
from the GORC IG/WG and, in turn, will feed findings from its work on
alignment and interoperability and its case studies into shared
discussions. While the GORC initiative focuses on a roadmap for commons
integration, the GOSC is creating a cooperation mechanism and testbed
implementations for science clouds that arise from that roadmap. Developing
and sustaining collaboration between GORC and GOSC, through the Data
Together partnership will enhance the impact of each initiative and result
in sustainable benefits for the wider research community. In addition,
members of the Data Together group are working with the various platforms
to convene a roundtable of senior representatives from the organizations to
facilitate these efforts.
